CT: Litchfield County- Torrington- Burr Pond State Park (Winter)

A magical winter wonderland walk around the pond and along an icy stream is what you’ll find at Burr Pond State Park in Torrington.

Nice 3 mile loop trail around the pond. I only went for a bit before the snow, ice and the sun fading had me return. Definitely a fun pond edge to roam. To its credit, it even reminded me of one of the walks around a lake in the famous Acadia National Park due to the rock scrambles.

Gift to be Present

As I now do, I went off the beaten path for a photo op. I am definitely becoming more courageous about climbing over fallen trees and slipping down the sliding slopes to get to the waters edge. I now wear old snow pants to accommodate. But the above shot was definitely a gift due to being present.

While I was there the flurries started to fall. It made a light coating on all the rocks and slowly disappeared into the water. I would never have done this in prior years. So happy to find it now.

As I left I noticed this tree whose roots were like legs crossed as if seated and embracing the rock at the waters edge.

I looked forward to completing the loop, hiking the other trails and kayaking in the spring.

I enjoyed a delicious Greek lunch at Yai Yai in Torrington following. Fun day trip!

    1. I started along the Walcott trail and went a bit beyond the first turn when I saw the river and then returned to the trail. Once on the trail I only got as far as the intersection of john Muir and went back as sun was going down.
